Yummy 'pesto' pancakes

These yummy pancakes originated as pesto pancakes but then I decided to reduce the cheese content and make them more digestible. The recipe is now wheat and dairy free (unless you choose to add cheese as the filling). They remained just as delicious and the whole family love them. They are simple to make as you can see from the recipe.

  • With the frying pan on a medium heat, ladle in approximately 100ml / ½ cup of batter, swirling instantly to make a crepe.
